As far as I know, there is no way to direct enable-auto-props to a
specific repository.

The 'config' file is a user configuration file that configures the
behavior of the svn client, not the repository. /etc/subversion/config
sets defaults for all of the clients local to a given machine, but that
default can be overridden by each individual user's ~/.svn/config file.

There really isn't any good way to do what you want to do. One
possible hack would be to give all of your users a special script for
doing file adds that would wrap the 'svn add' command and automatically
perform the property addition if the file is being added to project1.
It would be a bit of a pain, since you'd have to distribute special
scripts/binaries to each user, and it would also be a little bit
error-prone, since users would still be able to use 'svn add' by
itself. If you really need the auto-props differentiation, though, it
may be a workable solution.

Hope that helps,
